The majority of Skills consume some amount of MP (probably short for Magic Points, but the short form is not only preferable in brevity but because it is easy to mistake for the points in Magic that the Character can accrue).
Skills are often a requirement for the acquisition of further skills, and previously, this Skill Tree was available for viewing, with all the connections and dependencies shown as arrows and linkages. There was nothing clunky or unintuitive about these skill trees, and like all such graphical representations of connections (eg the map of the London Tube, whose creator is lauded as an innovator in design), they had a style and elegance of their own. The reason for their removal is unknown. At any rate, nowadays, an icon of the prerequisite skill serves instead.
Some very small number of skills are actually used as a prerequisite for the performance of further skills; this is known as a Skill Chain. These skill chains are rare elsewhere, but common in the skill lists of the Seeker and Duskblade, and occasionally in those of the Assassin
